Is there a way for forcing a user to 'update' a field which already has a value?

Supposing, for example, a user had added an assignee earlier in the workflow. Later I need that user to remember to update the assignee to a different user at a particular transition. Is this possible?

Thank you

Sure. It's possible.

1. Specify a condition with a Script Runner script for the transition so that it is only visible if the user updates the assignee.

2. Specify a transition screen which contains the assignee field. Then using the Script Runner plugin you could write a validator which would check to make sure that the assignee on the transition screen is not the same as the previous assignee.
